or do they just get redder? I have the opportunity to give a pet chicken to a family, and I was wondering if I should offer this one? I told them they could have an EE chick that just hatched, but they may be happier with one that is a little older. If it's comb has no chance of getting darker, I'd be happier with giving them this one as well. Edited to say that the orange is cantelope, and that the chicken is not shown actual size! Oh, and she's about three months old.
